While on the topic of spoilers... Lucky13 is yours functional? I like the looks of that style spoiler on the MINI's but Im curious of it's functionality on a street car since a lot of them I see are obviously not fucntional.

i didnt think it did shit till i took it off to have it replaced...it actually helps...and it's not like the mini is a freakin top speed car anyway so it was bought mainly to make the car look evil, but it actually does work and make a difference, theres a huuuge hill i go down to get to my old house and i hit it at like 100-120, and when i did it without the wing it was scary!

I can't believe I missed this....

OMG, that's so beautiful....

Is that the JCW spoiler on it? That's one of the most effective spoilers I've ever seen, aerodynamically speaking.

That is the JCW wing. Its CF and supposedly has been aerodynamically tested by JCW (soon to be released stateside)

Yeah, but that picture in this thread I missed. I do love that car....

That wing is so sweet, though! Well, the mounts are sweet! I can see they were designed to maximize the efficiency of the wing. Good science...

Good to know. I was thinking you might not really notice it unless you hit around 100. Thanks for the info!
